Dear Readers,

I thought I would catch you up on the silence of late.

This Macro Contrarian is in the process of moving from the beach house at the edge of the world inland to the stomping grounds of Sasquatch about 5 hours drive North East of here. The move will be taking place over the next few weekends, and I should be back to my regular posting rates in the first week or two of October.

My wife is currently the city administrator of Gold Beach Oregon. She has been hired to become the city manager of Molalla Oregon. We are currently in the transition period.

As they say, this too shall pass. I look forward to sitting at my workstation in the new home. Until then, its packing, loading and lots of unloading to go.

I am looking forward to the return of the “Macro Contrarians” and “The Last Trade” to Contrarian TV this fall.

Until then best wishes,

Jack H Barnes

P.S. if you have any topics you want the first Macro Contrarian shows to focus on, please leave the suggestions in the thread below.
